Arkansas: Republican Boozeman Holds 66% to 28% Lead on Blanche Lincoln

Republican John Boozman - Next Arkansas Senator

Republican John Boozman - Next Arkansas Senator

Arkansas Democratic Senator Blanche Lincoln is looking pretty much like a done deal down in Arkansas. With a runoff election still in progress, draining funds, a Lincoln win in 2 1/2 weeks will pit her against Republican John Boozman who is running on the “I will vote against anything Obama favors” platform.

Should Lincoln lose the runoff primary to Democrat and Lieutenant Governor Bill Halter, the Dems prospects brighten, but not by much.

According to Rasmussen:

If Lieutenant Governor Bill Halter is his opponent, Boozman, currently the state’s only GOP congressman, earns 60% of the vote to the Democrat’s 33%. Four percent (4%) like someone else in the race, and three percent (3%) remain undecided.

In previous surveys, all the Republican Primary hopefuls outpolled both Lincoln and Halter, generally by double-digit magins.

In short, the race at this juncture is an uphill struggle for the Democratic candidate in a state where the national health care bill continues to rankle voters who register much higher opposition than voters nationwide. Lincoln’s initial support for the bill in the Senate is credited for much of her political trouble, although Halter chose to challenge her. He is strongly supported by labor unions and national liberal groups.

While 56% of voters nationally favor repeal of the health care bill, 72% of Arkansas voters feel that way, including 60% who Strongly Favor repeal. Only 24% oppose repeal, including 18% who Strongly Oppose it.

As we pointed out on Wednesday at Virginia Right!, Blanche Lincoln is running as far away from Obama as possible.

This Rasmussen Poll shows exactly why.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
